Clematis Garden Tour, Portland, Oregon Saturday, May 28

Rogerson

Luscher Farm in Lake Oswego, home of the Rogerson Clematis Collection

On Saturday, May 28, the Rogerson Clematis Collection, just south of Portland in Lake Oswego, will put on their 9th Annual Inviting Vines Garden Tour.  If you love clematis and are anywhere near Portland, Oregon, this is an event you should not miss!  You will see clematis galore and even be able to buy them.   I have enjoyed all but one of the tours over the years–and will be attending this one, too, along with a couple of friends.  Maybe a clematis or two will even hop in my car.  I have been to two of the three gardens on the tour–the Rogerson Clematis Collection and the Tuttle Garden.  Both are outstanding and both have literally hundreds of clematis, though of course not all in bloom at once.  The third garden, Ainsworth House, sounds fabulous, too.

Here’s what the Rogerson Clematis Collection has to say about the tour:

2016 Inviting Vines Garden Party and Tour
May 28, 2016,  10:00 am – 4 pm

Join us again for our much anticipated 9th Annual Inviting Vines garden tour event that this year includes two private gardens, and the Rogerson Clematis Garden at Luscher Farm. This is a day-long special garden event that includes tours, refreshments, and lectures highlighted by conversations and strolls with two gardeners passionate about clematis in their gardens and how to grow and display them in your garden. Inviting Vines is a special way for you to spend the day with “old” friends and make new ones. We love having the chance to visit with you all day long at our own event.  This is a wonderful way to spend the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend.

Tickets are $20/person and include access to the gardens (including detailed driving directions and garden descriptions), refreshments and lectures. You can see more about the gardens on the tour and purchase your tickets from the Rogerson Clematis Collection online here. Tickets purchased online from the Collection before Tuesday May 24th will be mailed to you to the address on your order. Tickets will also be available through the day of the tour at Portland Nursery, The Garden Gallery in Hubbard, Dennis’s 7 Dees, Garden Fever, 13th St. Nursery in Salem, Joy Creek Nursery in Scappoose and Gardener’s Choice in Tigard.

Below are a few clematis you just might see on the tour.
